It is designed for efficiency in terms of fuel and energy
Hyderabad: German car maker, Mercedes-Benz on Tuesday unveiled one of its latest cars in the C-class segment, the Mercedes-Benz C 200 CGI, which is designed for efficiency both in terms of fuel and energy.
Replacing its previous Kompressor technology, the C200 CGI is equipped with Charged Gasoline Injection (CGI) technology, which has been developed to give higher mileage and lesser emissions.
“The CGI facilitates improved output, optimised consumption and emission statistics. The technology is the first-of-its-kind to use petrol direct injection engine in the world,” said Suhas Kadlaskar, Director of Corporate Affairs and HR, Mercedes-Benz, during the launch.
Apart from lower carbon emissions, the CGI technology ensures a mileage of 11.74 km per litre. “The technology will also improve the vehicle's torque, thus making it a perfect combination of power, efficiency and most importantly, environmental friendly,” Mr. Kadlaskar said.
At present, the CGI technology will be only available in C-class models.
“The C-class is a touch point for our customers. Around 45 per cent of our buyers prefer to buy the C-class and that's why we have incorporated the technology in this series.
However, we will eventually upgrade the same technology and S and E classes of our vehicles during this year,” he said.
The Mercedes-Benz C200 CGI is priced at Rs. 29.5 lakh (ex-showroom, Hyderabad).
